On this week's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the family needs a vacation from their vacation.

Starting with Scott Disick, who decides to break some of the tension by sneaking into Kendall and Kylie Jenner's suite with Rob Kardashian to scare them in the middle of the night. Because that wouldn't be stressful for anyone, right?

"That was a funny prank last night on the girls," Poppa Bruce Jenner says the next morning. "What, were you guys drinking? That's real mature."

Of course, you'll remember that for Scott and Bruce the honeymoon is officially over, and they've been butting heads more frequently. So, you can imagine how thrilled Scott is to hear something like that.

Meanwhile, in another part of the Dominican Republic, Kris Jenner wakes up to find a rather unwelcome surprise...

"I wake up this morning and I see a text message from my mom that says to come up to her room immediately, it's urgent," Kim Kardashian says. "So I have no idea what's going on."

Turns out that what's so urgent is Kris' swollen lip from an allergic reaction that leaves her, well, looking a little out of sorts.

Not to worry, Kris! Bruce is here and he'll say something to make it all better. "It's God punishing you for giving Todd your email," Bruce says.

Wait, that wasn't the response we were expecting!

"Bruce is usually the one to give me support in any situation," Kris says. "At a time like this when I'm feeling really vulnerable and kind of scared and he's going to be mad at me?"

While Bruce is sulking, Scott does much the same thing when Kourtney Kardashian tries to wake him up for breakfast with son Mason Disick and he refuses to get out of bed.

"I want to have breakfast with Scott and Mason and he snaps at me because he was up all night drinking," Kourtney says.

Get ready, Kourt, because he's going to snap again when he eventually makes it to the pool and immediately gets criticized.

"This is exactly why I didn't want to get out of bed," Scott says. "Now I have all these people nagging me at all times. I feel like I'm going to lose my mind here."

Scott has had enough and he packs a bag and leaves Chateau Kardashian.

"I really don't know what's going on with Scott," Kourtney says. "He uses every excuse to be by himself. But I almost don't care."

The person who does care is a little surprising: Bruce! The former Olympian decides to go have a talk with Scott because they have unfinished business. "I don't want to criticize him, I just want to be able to say something to kind of help him out and [teach him] how to deal with people. Life's too short," Bruce says.

"Yeah, and life's too short for you to sit around wondering if I saw my ex-boyfriend again or not," Kris pipes in. Nice segue!

Kris is finally able to clear the air about the fact that she never met up with Todd, and Bruce realizes where he's been going wrong as well.

"Here I am going on and on about Scott walking out on Kourtney," Bruce says, "but you know, really, I guess I walked out on Kris too."

That's right, Bruce! But it's never too late to apologize. "How can you not love a girl with a lip like that?" Bruce says, right before planting a kiss on his wifey.

Now that he's mended one road, it's time for Bruce to do the same with Scott. But when Bruce shows up at Scott's hotel, he ends up hearing the real reason why Scott has been acting so strangely.

"I don't have a family out here," Scott says. "It's just tough for me. Kourtney doesn't even want to marry me, it's not like we're really married and you're my real father-in-law. Nothing. And I'm left as the outsider….I'm scared every single day that I'm going to wake up and she's going to tell me it's over because I did one little thing. I'm scared to do anything."

It's news to Bruce and the rest of the Kardashians! Even Kris says, "I want him to feel loved, he's the father of my grandchildren."

There's no better time to show some love than at a family dinner, right? And even though the gang isn't sure if Scott will come, he does in the end.

"I do agree with my mom," Kourtney says, "that it took a lot for Scott to come to the family dinner. It shows a lot of maturity that he would show up knowing that everyone probably has something bad to say."

Scott's effort—along with some not so subtle hinting from Momma Kris—makes Kourtney realize that it's time she do something nice for her beau.

"I just wanted to say that I know that I'm indecisive, but I'm not indecisive with you," Kourtney tells Scott. "And obviously I'm committed to us, even though we're not getting married and I thought that was understood."

Apparently, it wasn't understood, because Scott says, "The whole reason I had another kid with you is because you agreed to get married if we had another kid…You broke the contract, you broke the deal….I'm not going to keep trying with you forever."

Yowza! Them's fighting words, Scott! Kourtney may not be willing to get married just yet, but she does buy Scott a commitment bracelet…which is just as good, right?

"The fact that she [Kourtney] told me in front of her whole family how much she loves me and how committed she is to our family, makes me feel good," Scott says. "And it's a very cute idea—this love bracelet—it obviously doesn't go with my gold accessories, but if it did I'd always wear it."

Awww, that's the spirit Scott! Who knows, maybe someday she'll get you a nicer piece of bling to go with the rest of your swag.
